Do you know the top answers kids give when asked, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” 

I wasn’t surprised when “teaching” came up number four on the list (only trailing behind dancer, actor, and musician.) When I was a little girl, I remember my dream job was to be a teacher. I would hold “class” in my bedroom, and all my stuffed animals were my students (getting them to participate in class discussions was always a nightmare.) Even at a young age, I was passionate about providing knowledge to others and sharing facts and information. I like to think my passion and dedication to teaching when I was a child lives on today in my work as a Realtor®. 

That passion had a significant influence on the professional roles I would take later on in life. My past professions with Disney World and as a business consultant were opportunities to share and provide knowledge to others to help them perform at their best. Even now, as a Realtor®, I get to live my educational dream by teaching my customers about the buying and selling process. I feel incredibly privileged to be their trusted advisor and help them navigate through the real estate process successfully. But regardless of what goals I pursue throughout my life, I will always strive to provide knowledge and be a provider of education.  

What did you want to be when you were a kid? Is it something you’ve incorporated into your profession now? I’d love to hear from you!
